    0658PulsR is great to fly…..

    The PulsR is a great aircraft to fly. You don’t need a helmet or heavy flying gear as the cockpit has no wind and it quit warm. I flew yesterday with only a flightsuit, a hat and headset. A very comfortable flight.

    05023First PulsR flies in Australia…

    YFT flies the first Australian P&M Aviation PulsR. What a great aircraft to fly. No need for a jacket or neck warmer, the cabin is just fine. Even your hands are protected. The PulsR flies just like any other Trike but it handles really well in the rough stuff. After flying 6033three hours in quite different weather CFI Peter is very happy with the new aircraft. The PulsR is not for sale. Anne loves it and as she said “its her aircraft so back off”. The biggest problem with the PulsR is the build time at the moment. It takes eight months to build one PulsR. So for now you wont be seeing to many in Australia.

    Check the Jolly Roger facebook page for more photos of the GT Lite, QuikR, and the PulsR.

    GT Lite flies in Australia

    Monday, May 9th, 2016

    05033The first Quik GT Lite flies at YFT

    Registration finally came through, so it was time to get airborne in the new GT Lite. This aircraft was great to fly and for the pilot who want an aircraft that can be thrown around or has the legs to fly a long distance. This might be the aircraft for you. The TG Lite has a 65lt fuel tank6041 and a cruse speed just under 70kts. This 2 stroke also has de-icing on the carbys just like the 912 engines. This distinctive Orange aircraft comes with full covers and storage bag, all as standard. At a price of $44500.00, the GT Lite should sell really well.
